Hong Kong - Culture Smart! by Clare Vickers

Book Description

Avoid being offended, or worse offending Hong Kong locals, instead familiarise yourself with local customs and cultures by reading Culture Smart! Hong Kong. This handy, pocket-sized book will help you to ease your way into a different culture and will assist you in making sure you don't develop incorrect stereotypes. Good preparation can go a long way in readying yourself for your journey. Whether you are setting off to Hong Kong in order to travel, learn, work or relocate, Culture Smart! will provide you with a wealth of information on everything from climate, population, doing business, nightlife and so much more. Culture Smart! Hong Kong offers an in-depth insight to the customs and cultures of Hong Kong, an area where many other guidebooks only scratch the surface. Culture Smart! provides rare insights, and practical guidance, into cultures. The values, behaviour and customs of peoples have been formed over centuries which is why the unique information in Culture Smart! guides do not date in the same way as ordinary travel guides. Culture Smart! enables you to step into a world untouched by other guidebooks.
